As it turns out…

Hurricane Irene wasn’t half as bad as we all expected (in New York City, at least), and aside from the fact that she broke my favorite umbrella and drained my wallet from stocking up on emergency groceries, she also gave me the day off on Monday… which is a pret-ty nice treat, if you ask me.

Now here’s to hoping for no more rain for the next two months… oh, and an Indian Summer, please.


Storm beginning to roll into Long Beach, New York


Water creeping up along the East River in Manhattan


Bloomingdale’s around the corner from me, even prepped for the storm


Unfortunately, my friend’s family in Long Island wasn’t as lucky.

Came across this picture online and recognized the block immediately.

Fortunately, though, nobody was hurt!
